Introduction to SkinVive by JUVEDERM

At Smith Facial Plastics, in Columbus, Ohio, you receive world-class treatments from renowned surgeons and Registered Nurses. SkinVive by Juvederm will leave your skin glowing, looking rested and healthy, restoring your youthful confidence from within. Aging should no longer stop you from feeling your best, and with Skinvive, we can help you achieve this.


What is SkinVive?

SkinVive by JUVEDERM is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable in the US to reduce fine lines and improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. This filler increases hydration to improve skin smoothness and provide a lasting glow for up to 6 months with optimal treatment. You won’t see any change in the shape or volume of your face — just healthier-looking skin for a lasting glow.

Optimal for use over the age of 21, our patients report satisfaction with how glowing, hydrated, refreshed, and healthy their skin looked compared to before treatment. SkinVive is safe and effective on all skin types and tones.

There are a range of ways SkinVive can improve your look and benefit your skin. We will discuss the process and expected outcome when you book a consultation. We advise all our patients to approach all procedures and treatments with realistic goals.


Who are the best candidates for SkinVive?

SkinVive can have an astounding effect on the following candidates:

  • Generally healthy
  • Non-smokers
  • Realistic goals in mind
  • Positive attitude

We assess each patient according to their needs, and when you discuss SkinViVe in Columbus, your provider will determine whether your skin can benefit from this treatment. If you have excessive skin issues, underlying medical history, or any other factors that may interfere with a treatment like this, it is important to consider this when discussing your options.


What’s the first step?

The first step to glowing, healthy skin is to call our Columbus, OH, clinic and book a consultation. During your consultation at Smith Facial Plastics, your provider will explain what a SkinVive treatment is, what it does, and how it can benefit you. We will explain the benefits and risks, allowing you to ask questions so that you can make informed decisions.

If you agree with your provider about the direction of the procedure, your treatment plan will be created. You may receive your SkinVive filler injections immediately after your consultation; however, if you’d prefer to schedule for another day, our Patient Coordinator will help you select the best day for you.


What to expect on the day of a SkinVive treatment

On the day of your SkinVive treatment, you will be comfortably seated in one of our treatment chairs. Your provider can administer a numbing agent to minimize pain and discomfort. Some patients are nervous about injections or needles, and we have resources to ensure you are comfortable.

The second step is administering multiple microdroplet injections into the identified treatment areas, where a tiny amount of product is injected below the skin. Your injector will take the time to assess each injection site to address all requested areas. Once finished, your skin will be wiped clean, and you will be provided information on how to take care of your skin after you leave the clinic.

On average, a treatment session lasts about 15 minutes, depending on the amount of area being focused on.


SkinVive Recovery

The best part about a SkinVive treatment is that it requires little to no downtime and doesn’t carry many risks or side effects. For this reason, many patients opt for this procedure during their lunch break or between running errands on a busy day.

We recommend you minimize strenuous exercise, exposure to extensive sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following treatment. You may experience minor irritation or redness following your procedure, which typically dissipates within a few hours. You can apply a cool compress or a topical gel to reduce discomfort if you experience any irritation.

The cost of SkinVive in Columbus varies according to the treatment plan designed by your provider. The factors determining your price include:

  • Treatment area
  • Amount of product needed

After your plan is created, our Patient Coordinator can provide you with a breakdown of the price of your treatment.

SkinVive FAQs

Your SkinVive Frequently Asked Questions Answered

Is SkinVive painful?

Before receiving a SkinVive treatment, we can administer a numbing agent to minimize discomfort and pain. As the numbing agent wears off, you should not expect to feel any pain. However, some typical side effects include soreness at the treatment site, redness, swelling, or irritation. Your provider will recommend topical remedies or over-the-counter pain medication for these ailments. It is also recommended you follow our post-treatment recovery plan of staying out of the sun and avoiding strenuous exercise to allow time for the skin to heal without experiencing any pain.

How many appointments will I need?

The most appealing aspects of a SkinVive treatment are quick, non-invasive, and excellent results. For most patients, one appointment will suffice, lasting up to 6 months. Maintenance appointments are popular for patients who are happy with their results and want consistency. When you come in for a consultation, our team will advise you on the appointment schedule where you will see maximum results from SkinVive.

How long until I see results?

You can expect to see results almost immediately following your SkinVive treatment. We recommend waiting up to 24 hours post-procedure to allow any redness or swelling to subside. The effect of the SkinVive glow will be pronounced once the treatment has adequately set in. By carefully following the recommended post-procedure recovery steps, you can expect your glow to shine bright, reviving your skin’s smooth, firm texture.

Can I combine SkinVive with other procedures?

Yes, you can combine a SkinVive in Columbus with other procedures! Some of the most common combinations include a Dermal Filler or Microneedling. These non-invasive procedures allow for time efficiency and less downtime or recovery. When you consult with your provider about a SkinVive treatment, discuss the procedures you would like to combine in one appointment, and he will guide you in the right direction so you can make an informed choice.

What are the risks associated with SkinVive?

Because this is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment, the risks associated with SkinVive are relatively minimal. Some of the typical side effects include redness of the treatment site, itchy skin, irritation, or minor swelling. These symptoms are usually alleviated with a cool compress or a topical ointment. It is essential to disclose any medical information to our team, including skin issues, health issues, or medication you are on, as this may prevent you from being the right candidate for SkinVive.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there may be a risk of being dissatisfied with your results. We encourage you to talk through every aspect of the procedure with our team during your consultation and hold realistic goals in mind so that you can make an informed decision.
